Studying chemistry and math for my next semester, and physics for my grandfather. Hiking, internship, and hiking, also hiking.

Figured this was a good place to put a list of links I was able to find and posted on another forum. If anyone feels the urge to learn something new, this should be a good starting list (though it doesn't have everything). Maybe if you feel your summer day is lagging a little too much you could make it a bit more productive.

Hopefully this will quench the thirst of those wishing to learn. If your tired of procrastinating and really want to broaden your horizons then pick a topic and you'll find it on the net (more than likely for free). Don't let the internet go to waste, make your choice to learn something new and do it!
